Running During Pregnancy

I like to stay fit and eat right most of the time but I found pregnancy to be a great reason to be a little lazy and eat whatever I wanted. Every once in a while, however, we have woman call us and ask where they can get our Best Cradle now! No time to order… they have a race in a couple days. And not just a 5K, these women are running marathons and ½ marathons and desperately needed something to support their tummy!

These moms-to-be have my complete and utter admiration!

So what does the doctor say about running during pregnancy?

Whether running is safe during pregnancy is hotly debated among healthcare providers but new evidence is showing that if you’re having an uncomplicated pregnancy and have been a runner when you get pregnant then it’s most likely safe to continue running, however, at a less strenuous level. You need to stay in tune with your body and talk to your healthcare provider. You need to decide together what’s going to be best for you and your baby. If any unfamiliar symptoms or aches and pains present themselves while pregnant and running, talk to your doctor immediately.

Keep these things in mind if you choose to run while pregnant:

  • Listen to your heart, you don’t want it to beat out of control
  • Make sure you can continue to talk while running
  • Stay off uneven trails and ice to reduce risk of falling
  • Don’t let yourself overheat
  • Stay hydrated with lots of water
  • Wear a maternity support

For Amanda, running got a lot easier once she started wearing our Best Cradle:

My race today went great, I had a lot less discomfort than I have been having on training runs with no support. The Best Cradle alleviated most of the pressure I was feeling, and miraculously, my hemorrhoids didn’t bother me at all…just wearing the cradle for a couple days before the race really helped those heal too!! – Amanda, Ohio

It’s You Babe wants you to have a safe and comfortable pregnancy! Talk to your Healthcare Provider before continuing or starting any strenuous exercise during pregnancy.
